Lenovo Tab P11 Pro Gen 2 hands-on review

GSMArena Team, 9 January 2023.

Introduction

The Tab P11 Pro Gen 2 is the sequel to the 2020 flagship tablet from Lenovo. The Gen 2 is a bit of a mixed bag, as it upgrades a few features over the previous model but then also leaves several others on the chopping board.

For starters, the Gen 2 has a newer and faster MediaTek Kompanio 1300T chipset that replaces the previous Qualcomm Snapdragon 730G, a 120Hz display, and you can now configure the memory up to 8GB RAM and 256GB storage. On the other hand, the new model has plastic construction instead of aluminum, lacks the ultra-wide camera on the back and the fingerprint sensor, has a battery that's 400mAh smaller, and a display that's also a tiny bit smaller with a slightly lower resolution.

You buy Apple. Their stuff is just better built, designed, marketed, tested, etc. even the cheap garbage $300 iPad is still going to get more and better use than a $700 Samsung,chromebook or whatever.
